FIX: Link - Not sure how this was relevant but doing this seems to have somehow fixed it (undoing this change still left the game fixed).
As @VaultHunter101 mentioned, it’s possible it was a permission problem and manually editing the config files may have had an impact. Whatever the case, it works now!
I recently purchased the Borderlands 1 GotY edition on Windows 10 to replay a classic. (via Steam)
However, when I go to the travel point to enter Skag Gully, the game immediate opens up a windows error message, with the only option being “close program”.
I have tried all fixes I could find on forums and Reddit etc. such as disabling certain options i.e. shadows and updating all of my software.
I am running 64-bit Windows 10 Pro on:
i7-2600k CPU @ 3.40GHz
16GB DDR3 1600MHz Ram (2x8GB)
GeForce GTX 660Ti 2GB VRAM (MSi)
Currently installed GPU driver: 378.66 (released 14th Feb '17)
480GB SSD Primary (Houses Steam and BL1)
2TB HDD Secondary.
It’s not the best set-up, but it’s far more than enough to aptly run Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: Pre-Sequel on max with a steady 60fps.
